Manchester United fans are fearing the worst for Scott McTominay after the midfielder picked up an injury in the club’s victory over Brighton on Sunday afternoon.
The Scotland international collapsed in agony in the 93rd minute of the Red Devils’ 3-1 victory over the Seagulls, much to the concern of the Old Trafford faifthful.
Worringly for United fans, the 22-year-old wasn’t the subject of foul before he collapsed to the turf, meaning he could’ve suffered some major damage.
Red Devils supporters couldn’t help but express their concerns the youngster, with many supporters sharing them on social media.
“Not McTominay,” tweeted on dejected United supporter. “He’s been playing so well.
Another said: “S*** if McTominay has a long injury.”
“McTominay injury will cause serious problems for this team,” tweeted another concerned fan.
One sadden United supporter merely tweeted: “Noooooo McTominay :-((((.”
“McTominay hurt,” wrote another. “F***.”
Another fan watching the game wrote: “McTominay, what a fighter…..embodies the United spirit #MUNBHA #MUFC_FAMILY #MUFC.”
Injury to McTominay put a massive dampener on what was a stellar performance from Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s men.
Strikes from Marcus Rashford and Andreas Pereira and an own goal from Davy Propper eased the pressure on the under-fire Norwegian, whose future at Old Trafford is very much still in the air.
United new boy Daniel James was happy with the team’s performance but believes they missed a huge opportunity to improve their goal difference.
He said: “The high press paid off, that’s what we have been about all season, playing with energy right from the start.
‘We were a little bit edgy when they scored and it was good to score again on the break. But we could have scored also seven or eight goals.”
United will be back in action on November 24, travelling to Yorkshire to take on Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
